do what you love.

I know it isn't exactly professional looking to have your artwork sitting on the ground with your child kneeling on it... but it is truthful. She climbed on top of it while I was trying to take some photos of it. It demonstrates what study boxes Alex makes for me!
This is the same painting after I played around with it on picnik, giving it a vignette border around the edges. I used to feel like it was cheating to digitally change my art, but have come to the conclusion that it doesn't change the fact that it is still my artwork.

You're just adding another medium. It's mixed-media, right?

I saw a children's book illustrator once, John Rocco, who creates his art and then uses computers to do all kinds of layering. It was quite interesting.

It's not cheating. It's expanding.

It's nice, by the way.
